“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” – Andre Kertesz

Street is the extension and reflection of the society. In street, everybody has a story, which is untold to another. The story could be a story of love, pain, suffering, joy, excitement, endorsement, success or a common story of daily stuff. But we the passerby do not know the story of others. I am in search of that story in street. I am Reshed Kamal, an artist, a designer and a photographer to celebrate the life around me. I am a social storyteller, a documentary and street photographer. I dig the street, search the moment, get the story and want to say life as it is.

Currently I am based in Bangladesh, working on my personal documentary projects and works as Head of the Department in Drik images which is an internationally reputed stock photo agency.
